The price is for the entry-level 2009 Mazda6 SV model, which is powered by a 170hp 2.5-liter inline-four engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
You know, Mazda has always tried, but has never quite achieved its goal of becoming an automotive design rock-star. But now, it seems that the company has finally found its own voice. Perhaps, a part of their success could be attributed to the current trend of introducing cars that, like plastic mannequins in a department store, look all the same, deliberately lacking their own faces. Still, the Euro-spec 2008 Mazda6 is a nice car.
First presented at the 2006 New York International Auto Show, the car will go on sale in a couple of months. The Japanese carmaker has recently announced that prices for the new 250 hp 2007 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 5-door hatchback will start from as low as $22,800. Compared to the standard 3-series, the sportier version features more rigid body and a retuned suspension that keeps the closer to the road.
The Japanese carmaker Mazda has recently presented a hard-top version of its bestselling MX-5 entry-level sports car equipping it with an easy to operate metal roof.
The Japanese brand has teamed with the British Prodrive tuning specialist to build a limited edition of its highly successful Mazda RX-8 performance coupe. Although the special edition version of the car is still going to be produced by hundreds, there is still a good chance that the 2006 Mazda RX-8 PZ by Prodrive will be much better at retaining its value compared to a ‘normal’ coupe.
The 2007 Mazda CX-9 crossover SUV, the one that will replace the popular Mazda MPV people hauler on the North American and Australian markets (as you may have heard, starting this model year, the MPV is discontinued not only in North America, but also in Europe where people, too, start to think that a minivan is not sexy enough to compete with a crossover SUV), will be officially unveiled at the upcoming 2006 New York International Auto Show.
The new 2006 Mazda BT-50 one-ton pickup truck will be unveiled just in a couple of weeks. The event will take place during the 2006 Bangkok Motor Show that will be held from March 22 through April 2 at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Center, Thailand.
